Our Carew/Carey family has roots in Soloheadbeg, Co. Tipperary. My 3rd great-grandfather Edmond Carew was born there around the 1770s and married Mary Gavin. They had 13 children, with all but one of those who survived to adulthood emigrating, most to Newfoundland initially; and Mary herself eventually moved to Newfoundland (presumably after Edmond’s death). Their son who remained in Ireland, also named Edmond, married Mary Hanley in 1849 and they raised nine children in Soloheadbeg. Many of their descendants used the Carey surname (Carew and Carey appear to be synonymous in the Tipperary area). For further information please click on Descendants List or Narrative Report.

I have only one Carew photo (see below) but if you have a photo or photos you would like to add (or a better quality version of the one I have), I would be delighted to hear from you. Please email any pictures to Many thanks in advance.
